My boyfriend and I had booked the Hoxton as a romantic get weekend in Paris. We had high expectations given the reputation and price! We were sorely disappointed. First, there was a major design flaw in the bathroom in that the shower was built with the wrong incline and the water flooded the whole bathroom and room. The water did not drain and we had wet feet every time we went into the bathroom.
Then, it was incredibly noisy. There were parties all night, keeping us awake all night.
So we decided to ask to have a change in room. A redeeming factor was their service. They changed our room to another one, more quiet. But overall, this hotel is not good value for money. The design is trying to be "retro" and trendy but it feels fake. Everything is slightly disfunctional in the room and not well thought out. For the same price, you can go to much better hotels in Paris.
